You know NOTHING about boats and the sea, so stop pretending you do. I've spent a good part of my life on the ocean is a boat. Any craft, ANY, over 300 feet in length, built of ONLY wood is unseaworthy. ALL wooden boats over 300 feet need to be reenforced with steel rods and iron braces. Wood is flexible, it becomes more FLEXIBLE the longer the pieces are. A wooden boat is heavy sea's *twists* The other planking separates and the boat takes on water. In many of these ship's the bilge pumps were barely capable of keeping up with the water being taken on. And these were boats that were reenforced with steel and iron. A boat unable to keep her bow into the waves becomes a bobbing cork, battered on all sides by massive waves. A ship the size of the Ark, and loaded as she was, would not have lasted a week at sea, and never a year. After six months her hull would have collected massive amounts of sea growth, adding even more weight to her. A wooden boat the size of the Ark with no reenforcement, no means of propulsion to keep her point into the waves, and no means of keeping massive amount of sea growth under her hull, is quite simple a nautical impossibility. Sorry for your loss!!!

Knowledge is not..

NOT faith.

Can I explain this to you?

Prolly not.

But knowledge tells us 16 oz. is a pound.
How much faith do you have in this knowledge?
Tomorrow 14 oz. may be a pound? Or will a pound be 16. oz. tomorrow?

It's not faith telling us it will be.
It however IS knowledge...that 16 oz.= 1 pound.
Today tomorrow and until.....the end of time./

There are intelligent people who is not atheist

It doesn't matter how much faith you have

But most important thing is quality of faith

Does it protect you or not

Every one can have faith but no every one have good quality faith which full of wisdom

Atheism is NOT a 'faith', it's 'UNBELIEF', the exact opposite...of faith.

sigh....

Being an atheist means you have no belief there is a deity.

Atheism is the belief there is no deity.

Didn't they teach you that in atheism school?

That is what is called the rational viewpoint. Which is very different than the rational viewpoint Topix atheists have.
Careful. They have tendencies to express their rationality in very emphatic ways. Watch for flying spittle as their mouths start to move. And stay out of arm's reach.

I haven't read much of it, I just saw the thread and thought the title nailed it, both belief systems require faith.
So people are actually arguing atheism does not require faith? That is silly to say nothing exists that we don't know.
All science is, is mans best guess so far, and that is eternally subject to change.
Atheism is a lack of belief in deities. No faith required.
